Do you want to know more about what Windows is doing in the background when your PC is shutting down or starting? There’s a useful registry hack to enable verbose logging. Verbose logging will give you a lot more background information.

What is Windows doing in the background

 

When you shut down your computer, Windows stops the services and checks the group policies for example. If you are debugging Windows 7, verbose messages are very handy and will tell you more about what Windows is doing in the background.

Windows 7 Verbose Logging Message

In order to enable verbose logging in Windows 7, we need to modify a few registry keys. Let’s get to it.

1. Open up the registry.

Regedit.exe

2. Uncollapse [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]

3. Next select System and in the right-pane, create a DWORD-registry key:

New Dword Registry Key

4. Enter VerboseStatus

5. Double-click on the new registry key and change the value from 0 to 1

6. Reboot to see the verbose messages. Verbose logging is now enabled!
